Oscars by the Numbers: The Most Appealing Best Actress Nominees

Best actress Oscar nominees ranked by their appeal.

With the 82nd annual Academy Awards set for Sunday, E-Poll Market Research ranked the best actor and best actress nominees based on overall appeal. Sandra Bullock and Morgan Freeman topped the poll of more than 1,100 people. Gerry Philpott, chief executive officer of the firm, told WWD, “Consumer sentiment towards the Oscars seems to be very positive right now. Entertainment, and movies in particular, fared well during the recession because it wasn’t considered an expensive pastime.” While classic, glamorous styles will most likely rule the red carpet, he said, “We’re interested in seeing some names of people who may really start pushing the boundaries in terms of fashion. Some of the young Hollywood up-and-comers, such as Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy, Zoe Saldana and AnnaLynne McCord are starting to rise in our tracking polls for their style and appeal.”
